Vicky Phelan, a woman awarded damages over a wrong smear test result, has shared a photograph of her daughter meeting her idol Ed Sheeran at his concert in Cork on Sunday night, thanking The Ray D'Arcy Show on RTÉ Radio One for organising the meet and greet.

Phelan took to Twitter on Monday morning to share the backstage picture of her daughter Amelia with Sheeran, captioning it, "And this happened yesterday. My daughter, Amelia, met her idol Ed Sheeran."

Adding her thanks to Ray D'Arcy and Will Hanafin, the producer of The Ray D'Arcy Show, for organising the meeting, Phelan worked in one of Sheeran's song quotes saying, "We are 'keeping this love in a photograph'."

Sunday night marked Sheeran's third date in Cork's Páirc Ui Chaoimh, where he kicked off his nine-date Irish tour on Friday.

The Perfect hitmaker now has a couple of days off before taking to the stage in Belfast on Wednesday night.

He will then go on to play two shows in Galway's Pearse Stadium (May 12 and 13) before returning to Dublin for three Phoenix Park gigs (May 16, 18 and 19).
